University of Stirling CC | USCC
Formed in September 2013, the University of Stirling Cycling Club is one of the youngest student cycling groups in Scotland. Although young, University of Stirling CC is frequently challenging expectations to become the Home of Student Cycling in Scotland. Wins and podium spots in BUCS and Scottish Student Sport are testament to our club’s growing talent, ambition, and capability. You can be a part of this.

Growing year on year, both in terms of numbers and results, the club is going from strength to strength. Riders are frequently competing at BUCS, Scottish Student Sport, and local events and representing the University of Stirling in a range of different disciplines from Enduro Mountain Biking to Hill Climbs.
“Discover the best roads, trails, and most importantly coffee shops that Stirling has to offer.”
It’s not all about racing, there is a large number of riders who ride for fun and socially, participating in weekly rides on the roads and trails around Stirling; an area blessed with insane scenery and riding terrain. We even have the opportunity to host Edinburgh University Cycling Club each January to come and explore our local stomping ground on Dumyat and further afield.

This social riding is backed up by a variety of social activities off the bike that take place across the academic year including stand out events such as Christmas Dinner and the annual Club Championships, definitely not one to be missed!
“Joining University of Stirling CC has allowed me to get the most out of riding around Stirling this year. Knowledge from older members trickles down through the club and has helped myself and countless other newer club members to discover the best roads, trails, and most importantly coffee shops that Stirling has to offer. Its been great to be part of a club making a competitive impact on the student cycling scene but don’t worry, this certainly hasn’t come at the expense of a good social or night out.” - Calum Kitching, Second Year Environmental Geography and Outdoor Education Undergrad.
It doesn’t matter what level you are, what discipline you ride, where you’re from or how you identify; University of Stirling CC is a club for everyone who loves to ride bikes; and don’t worry, we really love riding bikes.
